Knee Surgery Not Best Solution to Relieve Pain

A recent study published in the New England Journal of Medicine reveals that knee surgery combined with physical therapy provides no better relief of knee pain symptoms than physical therapy alone. The study involved participants who presented symptoms of a degenerative meniscus tear. Half of the patients underwent surgery, while the remaining participants experienced a sham procedure. The results? Patients who received the meniscus surgery reported no greater improvement than those who received the placebo procedure.

In the past, surgery was the best option to eliminate knee pain, but now there is a better alternative. Our “I HATE KNEE PAIN” program is designed to relieve knee pain quickly and effectively, while keeping our patients out of the operating room. This non-surgical treatment uses an all natural substance that is injected into the knee joint using a state-of-the-art Diagnostic Imaging device. This device allows the substance to be placed into the area surrounding the knee joint with 95% accuracy, resulting in significant knee pain relief with zero recovery time. This FDA approved procedure has revolutionized the way that knee pain is treated and prevents patients from going under the knife.
